PSLab: Add support to sigrok

About Me
Myself Kartikay Sharma, a B.Tech sophomore based in Delhi, India. Making small changes for the greater good.
My epinephrine - Code, Cars, and Cricket :rocket:

My Project
The sigrok project is a signal analysis software suite that supports various measurement devices such as oscilloscopes, logic analyzers, multimeters, etc. Since PSLab provides several such instruments, My project is to add PSLab as a mixed-signal device to libsigrok. Daily Scrums can be found here.

This week officially marked the end of the Google Summer of Code Program. I worked on my final report, and the link for the same can be found here. Project status, work done, and work yet to be completed are mentioned in the final report. I want to use this space to thank DIAL and Pocket Science Lab for providing me with this amazing opportunity. The support from the mentors throughout the program was extraordinary. Org admins, especially @downey, too did a wonderful job to make sure the program runs smoothly. I hope the work done under this project will bring some value to the organization.
Although this is my last blog under this topic, I can be reached on any of the social handles mentioned at the beginning of this running topic; regarding this or any other possible future projects. See you all around the community. Until next time. Adios.
